Nets Insider

The NBA team with highest likelihood of knocking off the Nets isn't who you think it is

Sep 15, 2021 1 comments


Forget the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Los Angeles Clippers, the team that stands between the Brooklyn Nets and a Larry O'Brien Trophy is none other than the Phoenix Suns.

The resigning Western Conference champs are an afterthought in the championship conversation, but with the nucleus of the team returning and valuable championship level experience on their side, Chris Paul and the Suns are more than a formidable foe.

Devin Booker is on the upswing and is a legitimate MVP candidate in the making.

Cam Johnson, Mikal Bridges, DeAndre Ayton Jae Crowder, Cameron Payne and Landry Shamet, who was sent to the Valley of the Sun in exchange for Jevon Carter, are all stellar scoring options for Phoenix.

The Nets have the star power with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden and Blake Griffin, but Phoenix has a fearless and seasoned leader in Paul to go along with a fantastic supporting cast.

The Nets are the odds on favorites to take the title, but not enough respect is being given to a Phoenix squad that is not only a viable option to come out of the West, but a team capable of winning the whole shebang.
